N33bn fraud: EFCC lied, I have never met ‘Lebanese accomplice’ in my life – Mompha

Nigerian internet sensation and socialite, Ismaila Mustapha popularly known as Mompha, has narrated his ordeal in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) following his arrest in October for alleged fraud.

In a lengthy post on his Instagram page on Thursday, Mompha said all the 14 count charges filed by EFCC against him were mere fabrications borne out of hatred and envy.

He also debunked claims by the EFCC that a suspected Lebanese money launderer, Hamza Koudeih, and Kayode Philip were his partners and accomplices.

“I met Hamza the Lebanese guy on October 24th, 2019 at EFCC office. Why all these lies just to bring me down?” Mompha asked.

Following his travails, he concluded that it was a crime to be a Nigerian.

He wrote:

“In every situation, you find urself prayer is the only Key!! l was arrested on October 18, 2019, by EFCC not Interpol or FBI.

“No Interpol or FBI is looking for me cos I don’t know where all these stories are coming from and the order of my arrest came from one of their head in Lagos because he has my travel details, which I asked what was my offence but he told me till u get to Lagos

“When I got to Lagos on October 19, 2019, he showed me my bank statement and ask me about the funds which came to my account between 2015 to 2017 which I defended all. To my greatest surprise, the next thing they did was to post that I was involved in internet fraud, BEC, cyber fraud and also 51 bank accounts which such never happened and it went viral worldwide.

“What kind of country are we in? Nothing like investigation they tried to tarnish my image but God pass them, I was in their custody for 40days which no evidence of fraud was found on me. After my lawyer sued them for keeping me for long on 22nd of November they gave me my charge sheet for 14 counts on money laundering 😳 on a Legit Business I did wit a mobile company in Nigeria.

“Now I know it’s a crime to be a Nigerian, I was shock (sic) when I came out to see people calling me different names like fraudster, Criminal, Yahoo boy which I have never defraud anyone or steal from anyone, also no petition on me or anyone or company reported me. They did this to me because of Hate, Enviness, Jealousy.

“First I need to clear the air on something, I met Hamza the Lebanese guy on October 24th, 2019 at EFCC office for the first time in my life and also Kayode Philips I don’t know why they have to lie that he is my partner and my accomplice 😡. Why all these lies just to bring me down?

“But now I am Stronger and wiser!!! May Almighty Allah Help me in this big situation (Amin). Now the whole world knows what they charge me for as the case is in court and my trial has begin!!! (sic). Special Thanks to my Strong wife and my family and my Real friends who stood by me during this trial of life ❤️❤️❤️”

Mompha was arrested by EFCC on 19 October at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja and arraigned for alleged N33 billion fraud.

He had pleaded not guilty to the 14 counts bordering on fraud, money laundering and running a foreign exchange business without the authorisation of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

He was, however, granted N100 million bail on Friday 29th November by a Federal High Court in Lagos. Mompha regained his freedom on Monday after meeting the bail conditions.
